Said she: “Its no secret that we are working towards perfection at Edo Queens. We aim for greatness and achieving something the club has never achieved before.
“Our aim is to make Edo Queens a model to other clubs in Nigeria and beyond and this has to do with the way we position the club at that level and we are glad that most clubs in Nigeria and Africa are beginning to see Edo Queens as an example of how a club should be managed.
“Success comes with a lot of price and we are working just for that. We want to become the best among all and create a lot of records and memories.
“We shall remain consistent and prove our worth with all modesty. We have very good players and one of the best technical crew around. We are optimistic on achieving our goals and we won’t relent, because it’s a long term project.
” We have to work hard to achieve all these, we have to work well together and take this step by step”.
